I've seen this problem too.  I would also suggest using testing, and you
MUST make sure enough memory is available for the guest to use.  Many
times I would forget to run a xm mem-set command to reduce dom0's
memory, and the system would restart or freeze.

I use the following script to prepare Xen for use...

mkdir /var/run/xend
mkdir /var/run/xenstored
/etc/init.d/xend restart
xm mem-set 0 1G
modprobe loop
